Iris Imaginoria

I live for art and beauty in all forms! Theatre, art, cosplay, makeup, writing, jewelry-making… these are a few of my favorite forms of self-expression. I look forward to helping you find ways to express yourself, too.
I am a specialist in theatre with experience as a playwright, director, actor. I earned my PhD in theatre at Louisiana State University, my masters from Florida State, and my bachelor of arts from the University of North Carolina. I am certified to teach English and theatre in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and have taught middle school, high school, and college.

I have taught online at outschool for nearly two years. Some of my most popular classes include:
*Makeup - Glamour & Special Effects (SFX) - especially makeup based on mythology, characters, and stories
*Fandom Literature (Percy Jackson, Star Wars & Doctor Who are some of my favorites)
*Theatre (acting, character development, playwriting, and more).
*Film (how are books adapted into films, for example)
*Writing (fiction & nonfiction)
*More traditional literature studies
*LGBTQ+ identity
*Religious studies for cultural literacy (including all the major ones and some minor ones... this was my minor in graduate school)
*And social emotional skills, learning to identify and regulate emotions through many of the above topics... I created a class called PRISM - Protecting from the -isms... racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and all the other -isms of the world.

I'm in the process of publishing a novel called "The Rainbow Path" about an inclusive magical world where all students are welcome, including all races, gender and sexual identities, religions, nationalities, abilities, and more. Everyone can find themselves on the Rainbow Path. Some of my favorite classes are based on the stories of the Rainbow Path. The first book, Imagine the Key, tells the story of 12 year-old Iris who thinks she needs to find light to defeat the Shadow that’s following her... but maybe she just needs a friend. The Rainbow Path has something for everyone - dragons, pirates, family drama, myths, magic, and a whole lot of hope. It's available for pre-order now! I love exploring the deeper meaning in everyday life and crafting stories that transcend beyond the ordinary.
